The Champions League quarter-finals promise to be high on entertainment with Bayern Munich and Liverpool both needing turnarounds to progress.

Here's everything you need to know about this week's second leg matches...

 

PSG vs Bayern Munich

Where: Parc des Princes, Paris

When: Tuesday, April 13

Kick-off time: 8pm

TV: BT Sport

First leg score: 3-2

When you need goals to overcome a first leg deficit, being without Robert Lewandowski is far from ideal. The Poland international suffered a knee injury on international duty and, having missed the opener in the tie, he has revealed he will not be ready for the second leg either.

Luckily for PSG, their goal hero Kylian Mbappe is fit and firing following his brace in the first leg and so Bayern have it all to do.

Sportsman Stat: Bad news for Bayern - only three of the last 50 teams to lose the first leg at home in the Champions League have managed to progress

Betfred odds: Bayern Munich are 14/1 to get the 2-0 result they need to progress

 

Chelsea vs Porto

Where: Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, Seville

When: Tuesday, April 13

Kick-off time: 8pm

TV: BT Sport

First leg score: 2-0

The Blues returned to winning ways against the Portuguese giants following their shock defeat by West Brom and will be confident of getting the job done in the second leg after hammering Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have two away goals (despite both matches being played in Seville) and will be hoping to keep another clean sheet having managed 13 since the German took charge at the end of January.

Sportsman Stat: Chelsea won the first leg of a Champions League knockout tie for the eleventh time last week, progressing on eight of the previous 10 occasions, failing only against Barcelona in 1999-00 and Liverpool in 2006-07

Betfred odds: Porto are 10/1 to progress to the semi-finals

 

Liverpool vs Real Madrid

Where: Anfield, Liverpool

When: Wednesday, April 14

Kick-off time: 8pm

TV: BT Sport

First leg score: 1-3

Usually, Liverpool would be full of confidence when tasked with needing to an overturn a 3-1 deficit at Anfield. The famous nights under the lights have been the setting to many a miraculous comeback but how will they fare without fans in the Kop.

Real, meanwhile, are a point off rivals Atletico in the LaLiga title race and will be full of confidence after beating rivals Barcelona 2-1 this weekend.

Sportsman Stat: Liverpool defeated Real Madrid in the club’s first three meetings but have since lost their last four

Betfred odds: The Reds are 9/4 to score more than 2.5 goals 

 

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City

Where: BVB Stadion Dortmund, Dortmund

When: Wednesday, April 14

Kick-off time: 8pm

TV: BT Sport

First leg score: 1-2

All of the focus will likely be on Erling Haaland as talk over his future rumbles on and links to Man City persist. Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, look to have the Premier League title wrapped up and so will be going all out for European success and the quadruple is still a real possibility too.

Sportsman Stat: Dortmund only previous home meeting with City ended in a 1-0 victory back in the 2012 group stages

Betfred odds: Man City are 15/8 to lift the Champions League trophy this season
